Srinagar: Urging all stakeholders to make an effort in right earnest to find a solution to the Kashmir issue, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today appealed to the civil society to join hands with his government to make an all inclusive effort to bring peace and normalcy in the state.
Reaching out to the civil society, Abdullah asked them to move hand-in-hand with the government and be watchdogs of the government and suggest wherever a course correction is required.
He said the Kashmir issue needs political resolution and this can only happen when all the stakeholders make an effort in right earnest to find a solution.
''We have been strong votaries of dialogue both internal as well as external to help resolve the issue,'' he said, underlining the urgent need for restoring the dialogue process.
Chairing a meeting of prominent citizens, representatives of traders, hoteliers, travel agents, house boat owners, artisans, taxi operators, shopkeepers, shikara union, transporters and members of the civil society here, the Chief Minister said in a democratic setup expression of views is the right of every citizen.
However, he said anger should not be expressed by throwing stones and disturbing law and order as there are other democratic methods of registering protest.
''Maintenance of law and order and tranquility is the responsibility of both the citizens and the government,'' he said, adding that both should complement each other in this task.
The Chief Minister said while the government is determined to discipline the security forces and book the violators of human rights, it is the responsibility of the senior citizens to play their role in influencing those who indulge in stone pelting.
Abdullah said strikes and law and order disturbances mar the educational progress of students and thereby affect their future career prospects.
The Chief Minister said rumour mongers and vested interests take advantage of such situations and add fuel to the fire. ''We have to be cautious about such elements, identify them and isolate them,'' he said.
He impressed upon the civil society the need to rise to the occasion and help in restoration of peace and order in the state.
''Peace is a must to enable us to move forward on all fronts whether political, social, economic or developmental,'' he said.
